They have obviously never seen the movie Moonfall. If any of you have seen it, you will know that a Space Shuttle can make it through the top layer of a tsunami after it has cleared the tower, so surviving the impact of a hurricane should be a piece of cake for Artemis!! :laugh:

Haven't seen it!  I did eat a Moon Pie once along with an RC Cola!

Moon Pie is a weird American food, we don't know what that is. We Brits eat proper food.

In Guernsey we eat Guernsey Gache. But be careful how you pronounce it.

Moon pie!  Also know as a "Scooter Pie".  Listen to the song Yo-Yo Man by Tommie Smothers.  He mentions RC Cola-Scooter Pie.

Oh right. Well lets hope its successful this time and no more hydrogen leaks. 

Looks like Spaceship will be December for launch with a bit of luck.

Mankind seriously needs a revolutionary breakthrough. Anti-grav, space elevator, or some other miraculous breakthrough. Like the tech that propels to famous tic-tac's. 😏

Asbestos underwear. A little itchy but does the job.

It was never really explained in the Commando Cody series.  It was said the jet/rocket pack was atomic powered and the controls were on the jacket front.  Quick little side note:  My brother-in-law was interested in bay sailing and wanted to buy a small Pelican single-mast sailboat.  We went to Mill Valley about 1/2 way up Mount Tam to a beautiful cabin style house.  We inspected the boat and the owner brought us inside to sign the paper work and pay him.  In the dining room were many studio sills from various old movie serials including Commando Cody.  The guy we were dealing with was Tristram Coffin.

Kinda unlikely as the silicone (RTV gasket maker) beads got ripped out of the seams in the storm. 🙂
